Rock Identification
Each number is located over or points to a specific rock unit:
»  Identify the rock type (igneous, sedimentary, metamorphic) and specific rock type (e.g. greenschist, arkose, etc.) that would reasonably be found at each location.
»  Describe the processes by which each rock formed. If the rock is altered from a parent identify the parent.
»  Identify the tectonic regime and/or Wilson Cycle stage each rock formed in.

Each number is hot; clicking on it will take you to an identification and interpretation of the rock at the numbered tectonic location.
  Answers here for all numbers.
  OR, go to the labeled cross section.
  Return to Stage I.
